VGT - Variable Goals Training Model - DVD

Ludek Bukac Sr and Ludek Bukac Jr from the Czech Republic present...

For the past 7 or 8 years now we have been perfecting a new and innovative way to challenge young hockey players to stimulate their read and react skills and puckhandling creativity under authentic game-like conditions.  We call this training method Variable Goals Training(VGT)  This type of trainingis used to focus on the development of individual skills an so it is very different from habitual team training practices.

In Variable Goals Training-we place multiple hockey goals in different positions within small areas of the ice in a way that challenges players to work on technique while giving them the options and the freedom to make creative decisions.  The goals act like imaginary opponents that the player has to beat.

In traditional drills the coach tells the player exactly what to do, where to skate, and when to make a pass.  In our VGT training we always try to give the players skating, deking, or passing options to make them develop their own decision-making and judgement.  Finally, the best reason to try VGT training is because players love the opportunity to compete, to be creative and to improve their individual skills.  Players watch each other's technique and they quickly adopt what works and incorporate it into their own game.  The drills provide an environment where players will stretch beyond their comfort level.  The drills are short of duration and high intensity which is very game-like.
